What brings us true happiness? We know from research that we often fail to correctly predict the things that will bring us happiness, and forget to nourish those things that truly bring our soul contentment. Is there only one kind of happiness, or several? Are all types of happiness the same? Is happiness always good for us? How does happiness differ from fulfillment, meaning, and purpose? This workshop is led by two nationally-known early career psychologists in the science and psychology of happiness, human emotion, and flourishing.
